Now on Netflix Instant: Remember the Daze (2008)

Remember the Daze (2008) - Written and Directed by Jess Manafort; Starring Amber Heard, Alexa Vega, Lyndsy Fonseca, Melonie Diaz, Brie Larson, Leighton Meester.

By Kenny Howell

With a title like Remember the Daze, it is obvious they movie studio was trying to get people to associate this movie with Dazed and Confused.

I am not the biggest fan of Dazed and Confused, but it is much better than this almost identical story of high schoolers trying to make it through the last day of school. The main difference is that this was set in 1999.

While there is a ton of fairly talented young actors and actresses filling this movie before they were famous, the movie never really takes off. None of the kids are very funny or interesting. It's as if the movie just figured you would like it because it looked back at high school nostalgia, and people really liked Dazed and Confused.

Rating: *
